Besuch eines Journalisten im Klassenzimmer
Posted 01/06/2018 09:04AM

Besuch eines Journalisten im KlassenzimmerAm Donnerstag, den 17. Mai hatten wir das Vergnügen Herrn Perras am Hauptcampus der GESS begrüßen zu dürfen, der den Schülern der Jahrgangsstufen 9 und 10 von seiner Arbeit als Journalist und Korrespondent für die Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) erzählt hat. Er gewährte uns einen fesselnden und interessanten Einblick in seine Arbeit. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt lag darauf wie Zeitungssonderbeiträge und Eilmeldungen produziert und strukturiert werden. Es war großartig zu sehen, wie sich unsere Schüler an lebhaften Diskussionen mit Herrn Perras beteiligt haben, um das Beste aus dieser Gelegenheit herauszuholen. Besonders interessant war zu hören, wie es Herrn Perras gelingt bestimmte Perspektiven in seine Artikel einfließen zu lassen, da dies eines der Konzepte war, das die Schüler im Rahmen ihrer Aufgabe zum Abschluss der Einheit lernen und reproduzieren mussten (die Ergebnisse können Sie sich hier anschauen: Klasse 9 und Klasse 10). Wir möchten uns herzlich bei Herrn Perras dafür bedanken, dass er sich trotz seines sehr vollen Terminkalenders Zeit für uns genommen hat, um seine wertvollen Erfahrungen mit unseren Schülern zu teilen.

IB Curriculum

The English speaking European Section of GESS is a fully fledged International Baccalaureate World School, and one of the few in the world who are authorised to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Since opening in 2005, the European Section has grown rapidly to become a school with a reputation for quality education with a strong community feel. We now have over 600 students. The vast majority of our students are European passport holders, for whom GESS represents a vital connection with home. Students are thus provided with a safe, friendly and familiar environment in which they are challenged to thrive as they grow into independent and responsible global citizens.

Our academic and pastoral programmes are designed to support this demographic and ultimately to prepare our students for returning to Europe or for entry into European universities. To this end we endeavor to support mother tongue language acquisition so that our students do not lose this vital connection with their home culture. Fortunately, given the high entry requirements into European schools and colleges, this also means that our students are especially well prepared for study all over the world, particularly North America, the UK and Australia.

The Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.

 

German Curriculum

Since the school was founded in 1971, the school has evolved into a school with two sections. As an accredited “Excellent German School Abroad”, the German Section of the German European School Singapore (GESS) offers all major German school leaving certificates. The European Section is an authorized IB World School offering education in English across all three IB programmes.

The German Section supports the students to develop their German roots. We give them wings for the linguistic demands of a globalized world through our differentiated English programme from grade 1 onwards. In secondary school some subjects are taught in English. Our students are benefitting from numerous bonding activities and have additional space to enjoy the internationality of the school.

Our Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.
